When school is closed for an emergency or weather

  • Sometimes our school district will close or begin late due to inclement weather.  It is important to be prepared for closings, late openings, or early dismissal.  

    In the event there is a need to announce the late opening, early dismissal or school closing throughout the District, the following resources are available to our community:
    Direct communition: Voice
    If there is a school closing or early dismissal, the district will blast call families in the district at their preferred contact number.  If you are not available to pick-up the call, a message will be left in your mailbox. 

    Visit any school website or pdsd.org for a pop-up message.  School closing and delayed opening decisions are made very early in the morning and immediately posted on the District web site. 
    Social Media 
    Go to our social media pages.  The district will post early dismissals or school closings on the Penn-Delco Facebook page or on Twitter @PennDelco. 

    And if you like the traditional excitement of hearing our closing number 456. . .

    Please note: 

    When school is canceled or dismissed early because of poor weather conditions, all school events and activities will automatically be cancelled.
